    There is nothing “oh-so-safe” about 36,000 people milling around the same campus, especially if you have people in dorms.

    On Samantha Peszek's* Instagram, someone told her to come comment for the SEC since they don't live in fear :lol: They threw in ACC as well, but we have had to postpone our first football game due to a cluster in athletics.

    An Arkansas parent is also confident in the school's ability to keep them safe. Again, I say:

    WOW. I mean it's not a surprise at all, just that it's out in the open.

    Rediscovered this pic in my phone. It was from March. In hindsight, Broken Jesus was a dire omen we did not heed.

    We've started DVRing new episodes of Wheel of Fortune so we have something easy to watch when needed. I think I ruined the show for J though. I thought it would be funny the other day to just start softly clapping any time the contestants did (while the wheel spins, after the letter is called etc.) We bought thought it was hilarious but then also noticed how often they clap and it's A LOT. Now every time we watch an episode J gets super distracted and bothered by the clapping. :lol: Like it's still funny to him that he will clap along for a puzzle, then he starts going on about all the clapping and how he can now understand why the contestants struggle with some of the puzzles because they are clapping too much to think.

    I don’t know how anyone is traveling for fun right now. That’s crazy!!

    I’m getting tired of hearing people on the news complain that schools are still closed. If they could hear the shit teachers hear in Zoom, they would understand. I’ve had multiple students tell me about parties they’ve gone to or are going to especially with holidays coming up. I have kids telling me they’re getting together with family for Thanksgiving which means going without masks when eating (at minimum). I had one kid go to Turkey for 2 weeks. If parents can’t be responsible, why should schools open? Again, that’s crazy!

    A coworker was telling us his teenage daughter is positive. She went to her grandmothers funeral and someone there was symptomatic and waiting on test results. Got positive results the next day and now at least 10 people from the funeral have it.

    We were planning to drive back to PA to visit our immediate families and so J could hunt but not sure that will happen now.

    We are not going anywhere. Might let my parents come and get C1 for the week after thanksgiving so he’s not in daycare when everyone comes back with it.
    I have two coworkers now in quarantine/limbo. My BFF’s daughter’s friend tested positive. They didn’t find out until after her daughter had what they thought was a cold. So she’s waiting on results and the whole family is quarantined for 14 days, assuming the daughter had it. And one of the guys here - his wife is symptomatic after having some coworkers with it. She’s also waiting for results, thank goodness so many people are taking next week off.

    My mom called me the other day in a panic about "those maga people not wearing masks" because she's supposed to fly to Colorado and spend a month with my brother's family. She has limited insurance provided by the county that is only good in the county. Plus she has at least 1 layover and was freaking out about being with "those people." We had a long talk that included her saying she was scared of carrying the virus with her to my nephew.

    Less than 12hrs later, she's texting about all the stuff she has to do before her flight.
